She wins, wins, wins, wins, wins, wins, wins, wins, wins, wins, wins, wins, wins, wins, wins, wins, wins, wins, wins, wins, wins, wins, wins, wins and wins.
And wins again.
This time it was was Winx Stakes, named in her honour. It was the right place to extend the winning streak to 26, a world record for modern times.
The best Australian horse of this century was again at her imperious best at Randwick on Saturday.
"It doesn't get any easier with her," trainer Chris Waller said. "That was a bit of blur. You are waiting to see it again and when she does it, you're not surprised, not relieved. Just proud.
“I woke up this morning and was thinking about the bias, the weather, the 1400m, possible new champions coming along, but you put it into perspective.
"The last 25 starts she has overcome hard tracks, wet tracks, windy days, short distances, long distances, pressure, big weight.
"She just ticks every box, like you expect champions to do."
Winx settled midfield and Hugh Bowman decided at the 600m to give her clear air and move into the race. Her main challenger, Kementari, was to her inside and going with her as they topped the rise, but then Winx went into top gear and left him in her wake.
“That was amazing," Bowman said. "It was going to be great or terrible, and you are just happy it was great again.
"It’s been a while since she has run over this distance. It is a bit short of her best distance. Glyn [Schofield on Kementari] and I came around the corner together.
"I thought I was near my top. She was struggling at the pace of this distance. When she balanced up and saw the winning post, what can I say . . . she is incredible.”
The crowd roared as Winx ($1.24) rounded up the leaders and went to win by two lengths from Invictus Prince ($151), with D'argento ($17) another length away in third.
She was again in a world of her own.
"What she does to horses is simply break their hearts. She can maintain it and some other very good horses can’t,” Waller said. "She has proved she is back as good as ever.
"We will probably wait a month for the George Main Stakes with her and look to go into the Cox Plate at her fourth run.
"Being kind to her is what has given her the longevity, and it seems the thing way to go."
Waller had to be told that D'argento finished third.
"He is probably an Epsom horse, but I would like to keep him away from her and get a group 1 for him," Waller said. "That is great start and he could go to Mlebourne for the Memsie Stakes or Makybe Diva."
Matthew Smith was delighted to see Invictus Prince charge home into second at $151.
"We had good faith in the horse," Smith said. "We thought he was a good horse from what we’ve seen at home. Even though his first two runs weren’t quite what we expected we still had faith in him."
"I just wanted to see him attack the line, and that's what he did in a race with no tempo."
Schofield was left with no excuses as Kementari was brave to the line to run fourth.
“He had his chance. He loomed up with the mare and couldn’t quite sprint with her. He ran okay, I suppose,” Schofield said.
